SEV Biblia, Chapter 22:16 Y el rey le dijo: Â¿Hasta cuántas veces he de conjurarte que no me digas sino la verdad en el nombre del SEÑOR?
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 16. And the king said unto him, how many times shall I adjure thee , etc.] Not that he had as yet adjured him at all, or not till now; but he asks him how often he must be obliged to do it; and now he adjures him once for all, that he might not be forced to repeat it: that thou tell me nothing but that which is true in the name of the Lord ? for he observed he did not speak in the name of the Lord before, and what he said was not in a serious but ludicrous manner, and not to be regarded as truth.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 15-28 - The greatest kindness we can do to one that is going in a dangerou way, is, to tell him of his danger. To leave the hardened crimina without excuse, and to give a useful lesson to others, Micaiah relate his vision. This matter is represented after the manner of men: we ar not to imagine that God is ever put upon new counsels; or that he need to consult with angels, or any creature, about the methods he shoul take; or that he is the author of sin, or the cause of any man' telling or believing a lie. Micaiah returned not the blow of Zedekiah yet, since he boasted of the Spirit, as those commonly do that know least of the Holy Spirit's operations, the true prophet left him to be convinced of his error by the event. Those that will not have their mistakes set right in time, by the word of God, will be undeceived when it is too late, by the judgments of God. We should be ashamed of what we call trials, were we to consider what the servants of God have endured. Yet it will be well, if freedom from trouble prove not mor hurtful to us; we are more easily allured and bribed int unfaithfulness and conformity to the world, than driven to them.
